Please, if you quote me, quote in context. I'm not stupid, I know it's impossible for Lit. Just saying that it would be nice to have Lit a bit more balanced. Few books I ever read were bad only and none of them was SW.... JediBen - Yeah, it's a bit unfortunate for me that my intertests are in things mostly dissed in Lit. Order 66 and Mando discussions are really, in my experience, best observed in fully cloaked lurk mode. You keep your head down at all times. This is one of the things that makes me waana throttle peole. Why should I get problems just for liking something that's SW? If they don't like friggin mandos or Traviss, fine, I'm don't like NJO, but I'm not clogging up discussion threads telling everybody over and over again how it sucks. Maybe putting up a pro and a contra thread for discussion would help. Me and Ron in the pro thread, everybody else in contra. Gabri_Jade - I had the best discussions about 'hot' topics in profic in FanFic. But the whole feel of it was different. There was a discussion about clones in the Over 30 Thread, i think that was downright wonderful. And not because everybody agreed, people just seemed to be more polite, less rabid about their (correct) opinions and maybe just phrased things nicer. Maybe it's easier when you write yourself to be careful with things other people wrote even if you hate them. *shrug* Dingo - Wow, what you said. Mostly. The problem with casual fans (that'd be me) and continuity fans is that the focus on a book is just too different. And right now, i have the feeling there's much more people focussed on continuity in Lit, which leaves litte place for me. Face it, they have little interest in plots, character development and such. But if they 'own' the thread,w here do I go? My best friend promised to read them books, but she's busy with writng a dissertation... *sigh* I can't remember who suggested having discussion threads hosted by users. I like the idea.
